specializes in the East Coast style of soft and gooey thin-crust pizza that tastes best when you're standing in the mall.
Winner of 2011’s Best of Austin Critics Pick for Best Dinner Destination on a Damp, Cold Night, this place is about as authentically Italian as you can get without jumping on a plane to Parma. Antipasti, Neopolitan pizza, and a good wine list make for good shelter here.

This restaurant serves some of the best homestyle thin-crust pizzas (including plenty of gluten-free options) and has Italian lunch specials that can be enjoyed alfresco.
1209 Red River, 512/477-7006
Some things never change, like the quality of these pies, and the De Niro sandwich – homemade foccacia with giant meatballs. Baked Eggplant Provolone on spaghetti sounds good to us, as well. The wine list is well-curated, and pairs well with the main courses here.
